Abstract

We propose a novel method for evaluating the similarity between two 1d patterns. Our method, referred to as two-dimensional signal warping (2DSW), extends the basic ideas of known warping techniques such as dynamic time warping and correlation optimized warping. By employing two-dimensional piecewise stretching 2DSW is able to take into account inhomogeneous variations of shapes. We apply 2DSW to ECG recordings to extract beat-to-beat variability in QT intervals (QTV) that is indicative of ventricular repolarization lability and typically characterised by a low signal-to-noise ratio. Simulation studies show high robustness of our approach in presence of typical ECG artefacts. Comparison of short-term ECG recorded in normal subjects versus patients with myocardial infarction (MI) shows significantly increased QTV in patients (normal subject 2.36 ms \pm 1.05 ms vs. MI patients 5.94 ms \pm 5.23 ms (mean \pm std), p
